75 GL1000 Questions

Can you still get spark with a defective candenser. Also where would I look for possible air leaks on my carbs. Idle will go up and come back down slowly. Everything seems to be tight.

Spark with a bad condenser. ..yes but poor and will deteriorate with higher rpm.
There are "O" rings between the intake runner and head...spray around them and see if the rpm changes.
